+1 additionally, if there were seperate forums, i think alot of X64 users would just haunt the X64 forum and all the X86 users would lose out on the knowledge and experience that those users have to offer, and vice versa of course
+2 Very true.....a lot of the more advanced users (builders/tweakers) do seem to use the X64 version while a lot of the preloaded laptops seem to come with the X32 version

at the moment. i do..
the few programs i dont have yet in 64-bit only, i am looking for now. the company s that have not or will not release a 64-bit version of their software will not get my business.
.
and i am only about 5 programs short of my goal.

i think alot of X64 users would just haunt the X64 forum and all the X86 users would lose out on the knowledge and experience that those users have to offer, and vice versa of course

i dont think that will happen, the people who solve problems go where they are needed. it the way they are. helpers help period.

nope i find it massive bloat ware and dont plan on using it until they come out with a 64-bit version.

i look at porn on utube enough to care if it is around or not.

but i expect they are rushing to release it in x64 as soon as they can..

considering that most systems today are being manufactured at 64bit, I think it's a moot point that what we are discussing eventually will be the understood norm that you are referring to 64 bit.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
 
 

If there is any question as to the version of a poster, you can see that in the system specs of the poster and most of us have it under our avatars. I see no need to separate the two versions.

you've just proved exactly what we are saying! how can us 64 bit users be able to answer 32 bit peoples questions unless the problems are the same? after all, when i suggest a fix, i tend to test it on my own system first to make sure it will work, and it works on both 64 and 32 bit...
